First i want to give credit to this FP post:

https://slickdeals.net/f/13893317-sony-edu-members-sony-alpha-a6100-aps-c-mirrorless-camera-body-only-479-more-free-shipping?v=1

The only issue with this for some people like myself is that Focus edu program requires 2 forms of proof of enrollment for student verification and is not instantaneous.

B&H also has a edu program that is verified instantly electronically. At first their prices were not discounted like Focus, but not it seems not only have they matched most items, but for some like the A6100, body or kit, they have beat their price so i decided to start its own post.

Sony A6100 body only is $448 + $9.99 shipping (compared to $478 at Focus):

Sony A6100 with 16-50mm kit lens is $528 + 9.99 shipping (compared to $558 at Focus):

I haven't checked if there is a difference with the other cameras or lens, but even if they are the same at least they will be easier to get verified with B &H

Update:
Looks like B&H now requires document upload to verify student status. If you already have B&H edu status, you will be able to order (like I did). I have also read (but cannot confirm) that if you have unidays you can go through B&H that way as well.
Good deal?

I was able to get in to see the deal using the Unidays login on B&H site, with the unidays account I already had. But apparently new Unidays accounts may need extra documentation now. But it does still work as of today 3/9 at 3:30pm pst

If it's anything like the a6k, the a61 should be a beast.

I've got an .edu email. But Unidays requires a copy of an ID.

So no-go for me, unless anyone has a way of bypassing the ID requirement?

Did you try registering through B & H directly?

Either it is the school that you go to or they have changed this. When I registered with Unidays, it was electronic verification, no document upload. I recently renewed with unidays a few months ago and same thing.

I can't remember how I became a member with B & H edu, I believe it was directly through them, because now when I log into B&H it has the EDU logo next to the B&H logo.

Yep, you are right, B&H now requiring documentation as well. I guess for those that registered before can still take advantage of this. I ordered last night and it shipped this morning already.

Crazy that B&H refused to pricematch Focus multiple times for me, now beats them by $30. I'm EDU at both sites.

If you were EDU at both sites why did you need B&H to pricematch? Why not buy it at Focus?

I've done a lot of business with B&H and really like them, plus their shipping is always overnight to me in PA. I ended up buying it at Focus - just annoying that they were so adamant that they couldn't match that price, but end up beating it by $30.
